Fourteen centuries ago, Allah sent down the Quran to mankind as a book of guidance. He called upon people to be guided to the truth by adhering to this book. Allah refers to the Quran in one of His verses in this way:
يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلنَّاسُ قَدۡ جَآءَتۡكُم مَّوۡعِظَةٌ۬ مِّن رَّبِّڪُمۡ وَشِفَآءٌ۬ لِّمَا فِى ٱلصُّدُورِ وَهُدً۬ى وَرَحۡمَةٌ۬ لِّلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ (٥٧)
[Mankind! Admonition has come to you from your Lord and also healing for what is in the breasts, and guidance and mercy for the believers.] (Quran: Yunus 10:57)
From the day of its revelation to the Day of Judgment, this last divine book will remain the sole guide for humanity.
The Quran has a clear language easily understandable by people of all ages who lived from the day of its revelation. Allah refers to this attribute of the Quran in the verse
وَلَقَدۡ يَسَّرۡنَا ٱلۡقُرۡءَانَ لِلذِّكۡرِ فَهَلۡ مِن مُّدَّكِرٍ۬
[We have made the Quran easy to remember.] (Quran: Al-Qamar 54:40)
The matchless style of the Quran and the superior wisdom in it are definite evidence that it is the word of Allah.
In addition, the Quran has many miraculous attributes proving that it is a revelation from Allah. One of these attributes is the fact that a number of scientific truths that we have only been able to uncover by the technology of the 20th century were stated in the Quran 1,400 years ago.
Of course the Quran is not a book of science. However, many scientific facts that are expressed in an extremely concise and profound manner in its verses have only recently been discovered in the 20th century. These facts could not have been known at the time of the revelation of the Quran, and this is still more proof that the Quran is the word of Allah. One of the scientific miracles hinted at in the Quran is the special creation of mother’s milk.
